ADAM DOUGLAS HILLS was born on February 11, 1966, to Douglas and Julieann (Newhouse) Hills in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was baptized as an infant in the family home. Adam grew up in Edina and Anoka, Minnesota area where he graduated high school in 1984. During his school years he enjoyed being a member of the football team and working at the car lot with his father. Adam loved spending time with his mom and Grandma learning traditional Russian cooking and baking family recipes like Russian bread and sausage. This sparked a lifelong passion in Adam and he would later develop chef-like cooking skills enjoyed by many. One of the highlights of Adam’s childhood was spending time with his Aunt Mary, Uncle Tom, and cousin, Robert. Adam also learned how to can with his Aunt Mary.

Adam enlisted in the United States Navy following his education and made his family proud serving as a Nuclear Technician. He furthered his education while in the military and studied Electric Engineering.

Adam leaves behind a legacy of impacts made by serving as an incredible example of a quiet servant to others throughout his life. He never hesitated to put others before himself and help anyone in need.
